What can be better than an old stand-by? Knowing how to cook it! (lol). See, I didn't learn to cook from my mom, which opens me up to experimenting with old favorites with new ingredients. I found this recipe in one of those packets of recipes that come in the mail -- Great American Recipes, Great Pasta, Potatoes and Vegetables Section, Recipe 5
